Atlantic Racing Series, LLC Moves Into New Headquarters in Indianapolis Area

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (June 24, 2008) - Atlantic Racing Series, LLC, which owns and operates the Cooper Tires Presents The Atlantic Championship Powered by Mazda, moved into its new headquarters in the Indianapolis suburb of Brownsburg on Monday.

The series headquarters were previously located in the former Champ Car World Series, LLC home on the Northwest side of Indianapolis. The new address for Atlantic Racing Series, LLC is 1531 East Northfield Drive, Suite 300; Brownsburg, Indiana 46112, and the new telephone number is (317) 858-0400. A full-time staff of five employees, including President Vicki O'Connor, will work from the new location, which will also house the series' transporter and other equipment.

"While we're not going to have much time to settle in with a race this weekend in Canada, we're excited to move into our new home in Brownsburg," O'Connor said. "This will be a good location for us as we look to our bright future as a racing series. We've got a lot of work ahead of us, but this is definitely a good first step."

Joining O'Connor at the series headquarters are Technical and Competition Director Steve Sewell, Operations Director Eric Haverson, Logistics Director Brian Hughes and Office Manager Mandi Kern. Communications and Promotions Director Anne Roy and Communications Director Nate Siebens will continue to work remotely from their bases in Montreal and Florida, respectively.
